Match Summary

3 It's a long shot, but…

A 3-1 Hull triumph is 25/1 in the football score predictions market. Such an outcome would be a shock result and could be the catalyst to a better season for the Tigers.

One to Watch: George Saville

The Millwall-owned midfielder joined Boro at the end of the summer transfer window on an initial loan deal, but the move willbecome permanent in January. Saville impressed for his parent club last year, bagging 10 goals from 44 appearances, and has started brightly for the Teesiders. The 25-year-old‘s versatility has seen him become a regular in the side, at the expense of the more experienced Muhamed Besic, and has already opened his account for the club in their 2-0 win against Bolton. The Chelsea academy graduate is expected to start this weekend and can be found at 39/10 to net anytime.

This Championship preview begins with home side Hull City. Manager Nigel Adkins could ring the changes after the Tigers’ last defeat, with Kamil Grosicki and Jon Toral pushing for starts.

The goalscoring onus will again fall at the feet of talisman Jarrod Bowen, who has two goals to his name this campaign.

The outlook is much brighter for Tony Pulis’ Middlesbrough. The second-placed Teesiders have benefitted from a settled line-up, with Aden Flint adding another dimension to the team.

The towering defender had his suitors in the Premier League over the summer but chose to remain in the Championship, much to the delight of his veteran boss.

Hull City vs Middlesbrough Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Martin Braithwaite get back among the goals for Boro this weekend?

After the morale-boosting win against fellow strugglers Ipswich Town a fortnight ago, Hull City boss Nigel Adkins hoped his men had turned a corner, but back-to-back defeats to Wigan Athletic and Reading have heaped the pressure back on the 53-year-old. Hull have already lost six matches, the most in the division alongside Rotherham United and bottom club Preston North End, and appear destined for a season-long battle to avoid the drop.

In contrast, highflying Middlesbrough sit in second place by virtue of goal difference and are a sound bet for at least a top-six finish. The Teesiders, who have a reasonable run of fixtures coming up, will expect to inflict further misery on Hull.

Championship predictions for this encounter see the hosts at 14/5 to earn only their third win of the season. There is a glimmer of hope for Hull, who are considerably stronger on home soil. The Tigers won seven games at the KCOM Stadium last year, three more than they did on the road.

Further Championship predictions show Boro at 21/10, and that’s the expected outcome. Pulis has a plethora of attacking options at his disposal and if record buy Britt Assombalonga doesn’t trouble the Hull backline, Martin Braithwaite or Jordan Hugill could make their mark.

A stalemate is 11/5 in the latest football betting tips for the weekend market, and there is limited value here. Both camps will be pushing for maximum points for different reasons and Hull have drawn only one of their first nine fixtures.

Assombalonga is the 4/1 favourite to open the scoring in this Championship preview. The DR Congo hitman is a real handful and finally over his longstanding injury problems, which have plagued him since his Nottingham Forest days.

Fraizer Campbell is 13/2 in the same first-scorer market, although the smart money may be on strike partner Chris Martin, who has been gradually eased into action since his loan move from Derby County. Martin is a Championship specialist and priced at 6/1 to get his first goal for the club.

Meanwhile, the both teams to score predictions offer is available at 5/6.

Predicted Score: Hull City 1 - 3 Middlesbrough
